Just heard today that the Federal Court will be giving its decision on Nizar Jamaluddin's case against Zambri Kadir over the Perak tussle.
If the Federal Court decides in favour of Zambri the reaction from the Pakatan folks will be:
1. the judiciary is rigged
2. its a conspiracy
3. its an UMNO conspiracy
Zambri will still remain the MB.
If Nizar wins then it will most probably be a State by election in Perak because Nizar will still not have the majority.
To keep harping that Nizar still has the majority because the three ADUNs have been suspended by the former Speaker Sivakumar will not be democratic at all.
(Err why did Sivakumar suspend them in the first place? How come no one has challenged Sivakumar in Court over their suspension. We all know how bad everyone felt when Gobind Singh was suspended from Parliament - for harping on an issue despite repeated warnings by the Speaker Pandikar)
Again if Nizar wins, it will be back to the polls. In such circumstances that would be the Constitutional solution available. Put it back to the people of Perak. Whoever wins then will rule.
The 31 frogs did not jump (maybe the incentives were just not "convincing" enough). The three, especially the most intriguing woman, may not offer themselves again.
Lets stick to the book. By the book.
